Publish Chilcot report before the election – Lib Dems

The Daily Telegraph reports:

Ministers must commit to publishing the Chilcot Inquiry report before the election if it is completed in time, the Liberal Democrats have demanded.

Tim Farron, the party’s foreign office spokesman, wrote to Francis Maude, the Cabinet Office Secretary, urging the Conservatives to formally agree releasing the report within a week of its completion…

“It has been over five years since the Iraq Inquiry began taking oral evidence from those with first-hand experience of the development and implementation of British government policy in Iraq,” Mr Farron said.

“The publication of the report has been long awaited and the public have a right to understand the UK’s involvement in Iraq, including the way decisions were made, the actions taken and to identify the lessons that can be learned.”
